EMDR Refresher Course


Putting It All Together

An EMDR Therapy Review


Interested in refreshing your skills as an EMDR clinician?  Do you feel like you were trained long ago and you no longer feel competent?  Have difficulty explaining EMDR therapy to your clients?  Are you still a little unsure on how to get to the right targets?  Feeling a little phase phobia? This workshop will help you feel more confident and bring your EMDR therapy skills up to date.



This intermediate level workshop will review EMDR therapy standard protocol.  There will be a review of Francine Shapiro’s AIP (Adaptive Information Processing) model and the nature of memory as a basis for EMDR.  AIP case conceptualization and treatment planning will be reviewed.  The protocols will be reviewed so that the participants will understand them not as a formula, but as an overarching approach to therapy.  Common stumbling blocks for each of the phases will be addressed. Highlights include, but are not limited to the following: introducing EMDR to clients, differentiating between simple and complex trauma, mastering when to move into reprocessing, how to ground clients, resourcing and stabilization, cognitive interweaves, fleshing out cognitions and targets, and what to do when a client dissociates during treatment. Client videos will be used to illustrate some of these concepts and enhance the learning experience. Participants will have an opportunity to practice skills and present cases. This workshop will strengthen skills by clarifying basic protocols and enhance the effectiveness of EMDR clinicians.



Workshop Goals and Objectives

1 – Describe AIP and the nature of memory and have the ability to explain this to your clients in a way that is developmentally appropriate.

2 – Learn how to take a history and conceptualize a case based on AIP

3 – Increase ability to create solid treatment plans with complex clients.

4 – Learn to use EMDR therapy with a wide range of presentations.
